Steve Scalise
The chief danger in life is that you may take too many precautions.

J. K. Simmons
I think ‘Hail to the Chief’ has a nice ring to it.
John F. Kennedy
Presidents are not only the country’s principal policy chief, shaping the nation’s domestic and foreign agendas, but also the most visible example of our values.
Robert Dallek
Throughout every presidency since the heist of our country from indigenous peoples, the black American experience has been exceptional in its discomfort. And no chief executive of this great nation has, in earnest, developed a unique plan to remedy that discomfort.
Patrisse Cullors
The clan is nothing more than a larger family, with its patriarchal chief as the natural head, and the union of several clans by intermarriage and voluntary connection constitutes the tribe.
Charles Eastman
There was a point in time, when I put out the Chief Keef diss, where I was so hot that everybody was calling my phone. But I decided to go set up under Wale, but he wasn’t really teaching me how to rap.
Shy Glizzy
I sincerely desire to be appointed Commander in Chief of the air fleet to attack Pearl Harbor so that I may personally command that attack force.
Isoroku Yamamoto

Mike Braun
My father would be an amazing, amazing commander in chief.
Eric Trump
When I was growing up, my stepmother’s sister was the chief detective in one of the adjoining towns, so she piqued my interest in crime.
Karin Slaughter
My chief literary influences have been Paul Laurence Dunbar, Carl Sandburg, and Walt Whitman. My favorite public figures include Jimmy Durante, Marlene Dietrich, Mary McLeod Bethune, Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Marian Anderson, and Henry Armstrong.
Langston Hughes
Deep in the heart of Kentucky’s rugged Eastern Mountain region, there lives a woman who has fascinated and inspired me for two decades. She is known locally these days as ‘Mayor Nan’ – the octogenarian chief executive of Hazard and advocate for its 5,467 residents.
Elaine Chao
For about a year, I worked for ‘Daily Kos.’ They were great. I mean, they allowed me to write whatever I was thinking about and feeling. ‘The New York Daily News’ saw it. They were making some pretty big changes. They hired a new editor in chief. I was his first hire.
Shaun King
As a military officer – and this is – I have lived my life in the national security realm – I don’t think I could vote for Donald Trump, because, you know, for one, I’m not a fan of a president or a commander in chief wrapping his arms around any dictator. That’s very important to me.
Amy McGrath
Jayalalitha has turned out to be a failure as chief minister.
Subramanian Swamy
I always had a love for the business. I remember hearing the stories about the patriarch of our family, ‘High Chief’ Peter Maivia, starting out wrestling in a rundown gym back in Auckland, New Zealand, then traveling the world, wrestling all over.
Nia Jax
The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity.
Lewis Mumford
If every man would make his prime concern the comfort and well-being of his wife and every wife make her chief concern the comfort and well-being of her husband, we would have very little divorce in the land.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Studio chief Winfield Sheehan wanted me to remain a little girl. If I lost my innocence, he said, it would show in my eyes.
Shirley Temple
The saddest fact of climate change – and the chief reason we should be concerned about finding a proper response – is that the countries it will hit hardest are already among the poorest and most long-suffering.
Bjorn Lomborg
Our chief justices have probably had more profound and lasting influence on their times and on the direction of the nation than most presidents.
Richard M. Nixon
I am angry – mad – at the Chief Justice, John Roberts.
Phil Gingrey
Clever people seem not to feel the natural pleasure of bewilderment, and are always answering questions when the chief relish of a life is to go on asking them.
Frank Moore Colby
According to Richard Clarke, the former White House counterterrorism chief, Bush was so obsessed with Iraq that he failed to take action against Osama Bin Laden despite repeated warnings from his intelligence experts.
Ferdinand Mount
I used to want to be a pro wrestler first, a stuntman if I couldn’t do that, and a fireman to fall back on. The guy who used to live across the street from me was the fire chief, so he was going to help me out if I didn’t succeed at the other things.
Quinton Jackson
The chief benefit, which results from philosophy, arises in an indirect manner, and proceeds more from its secret, insensible influence, than from its immediate application.
David Hume
I had been a foreign correspondent in Japan for the ‘Wall Street Journal’ when my editor there became Washington bureau chief – this was 2007 – and he said, ‘How would you like to go to Iowa and cover Hillary Clinton?’ I was 28. I went to Iowa.
Amy Chozick
A chief called Lawyer, because he was a great talker, took the lead in the council, and sold nearly all the Nez Perce country.
Chief Joseph
I was known as the chief grave robber of my state.
Dan Quayle
I am the first female chief executive of Hong Kong.
Carrie Lam
I have never declared myself an Indigenous politician; I am not an Indigenous Chief Minister.
Adam Giles
I take guidance regularly from NCP chief Sharad Pawar Saheb and occasionally speak Soniaji Gandhi.
Uddhav Thackeray
The irony of the Supreme Court hearing on these cases last week and of the outright hostility that the Court has displayed against religion in recent years is that above the head of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is a concrete display of the Ten Commandments.
Cliff Stearns
In my first company, Seer Technologies, where I was chief technology officer, we shied away from the media. We watched every word and were guarded in front of journalists.
Vivek Wadhwa
I tell the story of eight forgotten founders, people like Canassatego, an Iroquois Indian Chief, who taught Benjamin Franklin about federalism, about the idea that you can form a confederacy in which the central power has only limited powers and local control is retained.
Mike Lee
I can remember the morning after President Nixon won re-election in 1972. His chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman, called a Cabinet meeting and told the members: ‘You are all a bunch of burned-out volcanoes;’ and asked for their resignations.
Helen Thomas
It may sound surprising when I say, on the basis of my own clinical practice as well as that of my psychological and psychiatric colleagues, that the chief problem of people in the middle decade of the twentieth century is emptiness.
Rollo May
I am happy that Uddhav Thackeray has become chief minister of Maharashtra, and I would like to congratulate him.
Rakhi Sawant
The responsibility of a chief is to show solidarity with his people and to be strong with his people.
Mobutu Sese Seko
Sidney Lumet’s chief preoccupation wasn’t art. It was right and wrong in the American city, nearly always in New York.
Wesley Morris
Those who care about constitutional development should look beyond universal suffrage for the chief executive election and turn their sights to universal suffrage for Legco as well.
Carrie Lam
A chief is a man who assumes responsibility. He says ‘I was beaten’, he does not say ‘My men were beaten.’
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
As the state’s chief elections officer, it is my job to make sure that only eligible voters vote, but also that every eligible voter has the opportunity to vote.
Jason Kander
Life is very good. I’m the president and Chief Executive Officer of the Wireless trade association, the CTIA.
Steve Largent
I’m a former governor, and so I was the chief executive, and when the legislature wasn’t in session, I was running the state.
Evan Bayh
In my previous career as a chief executive of high-tech companies, I experienced firsthand the endless possibilities when people from diverse backgrounds work together. They get to know one another and quickly learn that they share more in common than they originally thought.
Naftali Bennett
Guantanamo is a chief recruiting tool for al-Qaida. It has put a wedge between the United States and at least some of its allies.
Eric Holder
I joined as chief scientist in October of 2009. The company is a URL-shortener and content-sharing platform; we provide tools for people to share and track links on the Internet.
Hilary Mason
I don’t think I was a control freak. I just couldn’t get my head around things. When I joined Sheffield United I was told I had ВЈ5m to spend, then when I went to see the chief executive he told me if I didn’t raise ВЈ350,000 no one was getting paid.
Steve Bruce
The chief condition on which, life, health and vigor depend on, is action. It is by action that an organism develops its faculties, increases its energy, and attains the fulfillment of its destiny.
Colin Powell
The chief enemy of creativity is ‘good’ sense.
Pablo Picasso
Got good news and bad news for you, Mr. President. The good news is that Chief Justice John Roberts just saved your legacy and, perhaps, your presidency by writing for the Supreme Court majority to rule health care reform constitutional.
Ron Fournier
Some scholars argue that although the brain might contain neural subsystems, or modules, specialized for tasks like recognizing faces and understanding language, it also contains a part that constitutes a person, a self: the chief executive of all the subsystems.
Paul Bloom
To teach how to live without certainty and yet without being paralysed by hesitation is perhaps the chief thing that philosophy, in our age, can do for those who study it.
Bertrand Russell
I served as Attorney General John Ashcroft’s chief adviser on immigration law at the U.S. Department of Justice during 2001-03.
Kris Kobach
A tragic irony of life is that we so often achieve success or financial independence after the chief reason for which we sought it has passed away.
Ellen Glasgow
I was Guy Molinari’s chief of staff.
Dan Donovan
A lot of deals are done or not done because chief executives are not fully aligned to shareholders.
Ivan Glasenberg
A complacent satisfaction with present knowledge is the chief bar to the pursuit of knowledge.
B. H. Liddell Hart
Who of English speech, bred to the traditions of his race, does not recognize Hamlet in his ‘inky cloak’ at a glance? Not to know him would argue one’s self untaught in the chief glories of his language.
George Edward Woodberry
I never place limits on the potential success of my students. If they’re going into acting, they’re going to win the Oscar… If they’re going into law, they’re going to be chief justice.
Alan Dershowitz
My goal was always to get better roles, and in my case, performing on stage really led to great opportunities. My breakthrough came when I did Calder Willingham’s ‘End as a Man’ on stage and was spotted by Max Arnow, who’d been the casting chief for Columbia.
Robert Vaughn
As New York’s chief law enforcement officer, I have taken a hard line against those in state government who abuse the law they have sworn to uphold.
Eric Schneiderman
I put a lot into it, and when I am done playing, I plan on going undercover and then being the sheriff or chief of police somewhere, either Miami or Orlando, I don’t know yet.
Shaquille O’Neal
The chief problem of low-income farmers is poverty.
Nelson Rockefeller
I am not going to quit politics until I fulfill the promise made to Balasaheb of making a Shiv Sainik the chief minister of Maharashtra. I will do it.
Uddhav Thackeray
Possession of the pure synthetic specimens of the anthocyanidins and chief anthocyanins enabled my wife and me to devise quick tests for these colouring matters which can be used with the material from a few flower petals.
Robert Robinson
The truth of things is the chief nutriment of superior intellects.
Leonardo da Vinci
Apart from being a chief minister, I am also the national president of my party. So I have to take care of the party in other states as well as in U.P.
The integrity of our government, our Republic, fundamentally relies on the principle that no person, not even the president or the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, is above our laws.
Paul Gosar
If Chief Justice Warren and his associates had known God’s word and had desired to do the Lord’s will, I am quite confident that the 1954 decision would never have been made.
Jerry Falwell
There’s a real difference of what one believed was one’s chief responsibility between American professors and Chinese professors. This was vividly revealed to me when I compared what I could learn in Chicago and what I could learn in China.
Chen-Ning Yang
Cheney was among the best secretaries of defence the country has ever had. He was a very effective White House chief of staff. He did not make many enemies, and he had the ability to persuade people with that soft tone and very reasonable style of his. He’s always been exceptionally good as the right-hand man.
Barton Gellman
I’ve been a soldier too long to refuse to entertain any request from a potential commander in chief.
Michael T. Flynn
There is no doubt in my mind that Article II limits to a considerable degree the application of the obstruction statutes to the president when he is acting in his capacity as chief law-enforcement officer of the country.
Benjamin Wittes
Businessmen… were not born chief executives. They were often people first.
Richard Jefferson
I met Drake. That was crazy. Chief Keef, that was another crazy one. Obviously, people like Ski Mask The Slump God, that’s my boy.
The Kid Laroi
If Chief Keef can run around and say he’s 300, I’m definitely 1400.
Trippie Redd
When I won gold medals in both the 200m and 400m events at the 1958 Asian Games, the then chief of army staff, General K.S. Thimayya, announced my promotion as a junior commissioned officer.
Milkha Singh
The chief job of foreign policy today is helping to figure out the rules for the global economy and defending each nation’s interests within it.
Chrystia Freeland
Not surprisingly, the chief way self-published authors get the word out about their books is through the Internet.
Ruth Glick
I was the understudy to the understudy in a year-two production of ‘Big Chief Red Feather.’ The boy who had the lead broke his arm, and then the understudy got chicken pox. And I loved it. I got to wear the most feathers in my headdress.
Sarah Snook
In Judaism, there are 613 biblical commandments, and the Talmud says that the chief commandment of all is study.
Norman Lamm
Obviously you can make a pretty good living these days as a crew member or a crew chief or as a driver. But the technology is expensive.
Michael Waltrip
I have been in the politics for the last 40 years. I became chief minister in 1995 and worked in the NDA and UPA. I have seen it all.
N. Chandrababu Naidu
With the greater part of rich people, the chief enjoyment of riches consists in the parade of riches.
Adam Smith
In ancient British times, the whole country belonged to tribes, and the tribes owned their several districts. At the head of each tribe was the chief.
Sabine Baring-Gould
I try to control my box. I always think the goalkeeper has to be the chief of the box: it’s his area, and he has to defend it.
Hugo Lloris
All these movies are observational comedies. I see somebody, maybe a dry cleaner, and notice how they are. Maybe I’ll decide to turn a person with those traits into a studio chief.
Christopher Guest
To say that I’m going to veto something that I haven’t read is just – or sign something that I haven’t read – I don’t think is good policy for any chief executive.
Doug Ducey
A chief of station is the head of all intelligence operations in any given country.
Valerie Plame
I think of being the mayor of a big city with so many incredible things happening – but also so many challenges and opportunities – as really being kind of the chief advocate for the people.
Lori Lightfoot
The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind.
H. L. Mencken
If you look at my track record as government chief scientific advisor, I’ve always recognized that all of the sciences are important to all of research, and we need a balance.
Mark Walport
If I paid more attention to my appearance, people might think that the proficiency of design industry isn’t too bad in a city with such a chief executive.
Carrie Lam
I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation. We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right. Riches would do us no good. We could not take them with us to the other world. We do not want riches. We want peace and love.
Red Cloud
The rule of law, and the idea that it applies to everyone regardless of what office that person might hold, is the chief ingredient in our democracy.
Eric Swalwell
It was only on sympathy wave had KCR won the elections in 2014 and became the chief minister.
While security of national leadership is of paramount significance, expenditure on permanent civil structures at the family home of the prime minister and chief minister from public exchequer will be a burden on their conscience.
Shehbaz Sharif
I co-founded Affectiva with Professor Rosalind W. Picard when we spun out of MIT Media Lab in 2009. I acted as Chief Technology and Science Officer for several years until becoming CEO mid-2016, one of a handful of female CEOs in the AI space.
Rana el Kaliouby
At the conclusion of my argument I received very high compliments from the Chief Justice and later from other of the Judges. What they said I do not care to repeat.
William Henry Moody
I the chief of sinners am, but Jesus died for me.
John Wesley
The chief al Qaeda recruiting tool is the net.
Bill O’Reilly
After so many attempts to mount a musical version of ‘Lolita,’ the project was well and truly dead by the summer of 1971. Chief among those relieved: Vladimir Nabokov.
Sarah Weinman
Running a government as chief minister and managing affairs of the nation are different things.
Sharad Pawar
CEOs are often chief product officers. But for me to say I’m a chief product officer when my product is a community, I really should be thinking of myself as head of this community.
Brian Chesky
The police chief of Hiroshima welcomed me eagerly as the first Allied correspondent to reach the city.
Wilfred Burchett
Definitely, a non-tribal can become chief minister in Jharkhand.
Kariya Munda
Chief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents.
Lupe Fiasco
Almost the only persons who may be said to comprehend even approximately the significance, principles, and purposes of Socialism are the chief leaders of the extreme wings of the Socialistic forces, and perhaps a few of the money kings themselves.
Benjamin Tucker
The chief of staff has to reflect and sometimes complement the strengths of the president he serves.
William M. Daley
I have the greatest respect for Chief Harteau. I was a very firm supporter of hers when her nomination was brought forward, and I think that her goals and values are in line with mine when it comes to the Police Department.
Betsy Hodges
Cyberbullying isn’t real. But bullying and harassment certainly are real. Trust me, friends, I went to school in England. They’ve got bullying down to a fine art. I know, because I was one of its chief architects. I was awful to my fellow schoolboys.
Milo Yiannopoulos
I fully understand the expectations of the state governments. Thus, I am better placed to work closely with the chief ministers.
Narendra Modi
It’s often said that the most important qualities in a chief executive are character and judgment.
James B. Stewart
Looking back, my life seems like one long obstacle race, with me as the chief obstacle.
Jack Paar
I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff.
Aleister Crowley
There is the fear, common to all English-only speakers, that the chief purpose of foreign languages is to make fun of us. Otherwise, you know, why not just come out and say it?
Barbara Ehrenreich
As California’s former chief elections officer, I was proud to strengthen election security and boost voter turnout by implementing the critical reforms contained in the For the People Act. They are proven, they are secure, and they should be available to all voters.
Alex Padilla
I’ve developed this love of trashy Russian literature. There’s a women’s detective series that I was obsessed with for a while, written by Aleksandra Marinina, the former chief of police.
Elif Batuman
But the federal government, our collective government, has responsibilities that none of these other levels of government can fulfill; and chief among these is national defense.
Don Nickles
Every man is his own chief enemy.
That idea of peace and love toward humanity shouldn’t be nationalistic or denominational. It should be a chief concern for all mankind.
Mos Def
When I voted against the cap-and-trade bill, the phone rang and it was the chief of staff of the president of the United States of America, Rahm Emanuel, and he started swearing at me in terms and words that I hadn’t heard since that crossing the line ceremony on the USS New Jersey in 1983.
Eric Massa
Actually, when Vineeth was in class 10, I was invited to his school as the chief guest. Till then I had never accepted an invitation to the school day but since Vineeth was leaving school, I decided to accept the invitation. He was the school leader too.
It is not materialism that is the chief curse of the world, as pastors teach, but idealism. Men get into trouble by taking their visions and hallucinations too seriously.
H. L. Mencken
One of my chief criticisms of U.S. international policy is that Congress has largely abdicated its foreign policy-making responsibilities to the executive branch.
Chris Murphy
The chief difficulty which prevents men of science from believing in divine as well as in nature Spirits is their materialism.
Helena Blavatsky
I promise that if there was no Hillary Clinton, there would still be a ‘Commander in Chief’ – I want to have a hit show that people enjoy, and really, that’s it.
Rod Lurie
As the Chief of the Defence Staff says, you don’t defend on the goal line. Defending the interests of the U.K. means tackling threats early and at source, and that means intervening overseas.
Bob Ainsworth
Being the chief minister of a regional government is just a pastime compared with the hellish job of being prime minister of two different communities brought together.
Elio Di Rupo
I have always ensured that law and order was maintained during my tenures as Chief Minister of the state.
I created the first black superhero who was not a gangbanger or an African chief but was rather a college graduate and a professional, which I think is a big accomplishment.
Neal Adams
Right from the beginning, it was clear that Karnataka chief minister S M Krishna had come with the intention of not giving more water to Tamil Nadu.
J. Jayalalithaa
The chief contribution of Protestantism to human thought is its massive proof that God is a bore.
H. L. Mencken
Forty-six years after my parents’ journey from India, here I am, the grandson of a spare auto parts salesman and a file clerk, tapped by the President of the United States to be the nation’s chief communications regulator.
Ajit Pai
Be the chief but never the lord.
Lao Tzu
At this stage, my chief professional goal is simply to keep on writing and making a living at it.
Fred Saberhagen
I have become the chief minister not with a selfish motive.
H. D. Kumaraswamy
As governor, my chief responsibility is to keep our state and people safe, which is why I have decided to oppose Arkansas being used as a relocation center for Syrian refugees.
Asa Hutchinson
I had a very warm and cordial relationship with the then former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee when I was the chief minister for the first time.
Amarinder Singh
Pro football was taking off when I became commissioner, and when a sport’s successful and you’re its chief executive officer, much of the credit flows to you and you develop a good track record.
Pete Rozelle
I’ve been in a position before where a president has turned to me in the Oval Office in a difficult moment, without any pleasantries, and said, ‘I’m asking you as your president and Commander in Chief to take command of the international security force in Afghanistan.’ The only response can be, ‘Yes, Mr. President.’
David Petraeus
We are faced with the paradoxical fact that education has become one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.
Bertrand Russell
The chief symptom of adolescence is a state of expectation, a tendency towards creative work, and a need for the strengthening of self-confidence. Suddenly, the child becomes very sensitive to the rudeness and humiliations which he had previously suffered with patient indifference.
Maria Montessori
